The American TV anchor is best known for her role with Fox Corporation’s pay television channel, Fox Sports, where her work speaks for her in a department dominated by men.

Audra is famous for her wide coverage of stories related to the Minnesota-based teams; the Twins, Timberwolves, and Wild. The charm and glamour which she brings while reporting on these teams is part of the reasons she is much loved by her fans. Her increasing popularity has further given rise to many questions about her career and personal life and we have all the answers.

Audra Martin Before Her Life On Screen

Audra Martin is a Chicago native who was born in September 1990. The exact day she was born has not been revealed. More so, details of the TV anchor’s early life are not known, as well as the identity of her parents and siblings. However, we are able to gather that she grew up with her parents and a sister. There are also reports that she has a very close relationship with members of her family, particularly her nephew who’s fond of calling her ‘Bug’.

While information about her high school cannot be found, reports have it that the sports news anchor earned a degree in Broadcast Journalism and Criminal Justice from the prestigious University of Central Florida. Her interest in sports began in her childhood, long before her college days. At that time, she became a fan of baseball thanks to her late grandmother. Her granny died in 2011 but the seed she sowed in her is still bearing fruits in her career.

As a high school student, Audra Martin played volleyball and softball as she also took part in the cheerleading activities. The young girl also had a huge interest in music as she played two instruments; the violin and cello. When she was about three years of age, she was already playing the violin and by the time she turned twelve, she began singing. Audra was reported to have been so talented that she got the opportunity to perform the national anthem at a WNBA game in 2009. Nevertheless, her career path took a different turn after college.

Her Career Exploits As A Professional Sports Journalist

Audra Martin began her professional career soon after graduating from college where, as mentioned above, she bagged a degree in Broadcast Journalism and Criminal Justice. The criminal justice part was supposed to serve as her Plan B if journalism did not work out. Her first work as an expert was at the Huntsville, Alabama-based TV station, WAAY-TV, where she reported for the Atlanta Thrashers. She also worked with the Atlanta Braves Organization. After a while, she got a new job at the Nashville-based television station, WKRN-TV, where she was a sideline reporter and sports anchor for the Tennessee Titans.

After some years of experience in the various TV stations aforementioned and more, Audra made a huge breakthrough in her career after she was hired by Fox Sports to serve as its permanent host. She replaced the Minnesota-based news anchor Jamie Hersch, who moved to the NHL Network. Audra officially started working with the television station in October 2015.

How Much Is Audra Martin Worth?

Audra’s job with Fox Sports, which began in 2015, is unarguably the biggest in her career so far. Having done a good job in the position thus far, she has been able to make a good living. While her net worth is yet to be established, although some sources estimate it to be around $1 million, the journalist is known to take home an annual salary of $63,000.00.

Audra has been able to afford herself a good life as a result of her earnings and is expected to earn more in the future if she keeps a stable form in her career life. The Chicago native also has a lot of years ahead of her so the sky appears to be the limit.

What We Know About Her Love Life

One question people are curious to find out about Audra Martin is the one that relates to her personal life and relationship status. Sadly, the famous American journalist has maintained a very private life which makes it quite difficult to know who she has been dating.

However, from our findings, we can easily conclude that Audra Martin is still single and has not been previously married.

Perhaps the journalist is still busy building her career or she is keeping her private life away from the prying eyes of the public.
